The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Defence and Deputy Chairman, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko has described the death of thirteen persons in a boat mishap in Doruwa village, Shagari Local Government Area (LGA) as very shocking and saddening.

The boat conveying the deceased persons, including women, children and the elderly, was said to be traveling from Doruwa to Ginga, Shagari LGA, Thursday evening, when it capsized.

The thirteen recovered dead bodies had since buried according to Islamic rites.

The search for other victims, dead or alive, is still in progress.

The former Governor, who now represents Sokoto North Senatorial District, while reacting to the sad development, said he was rudely shocked on receiving the news of the unfortunate tragedy.

He lamented that, the mishap occurred barely nine days after the deaths of over one hundred persons in a similar tragedy in Warrah, Warrah LGA of Kebbi State.

Wamakko prayed the Almighty Allah grant the deceased persons Aljannat Firdaus, as well as give the bereaved families, people and Governments of Shagari LGA the formidable fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

He also prayed to Almighty Allah to prevent the recurrence of such tragedies in the area, Sokoto State and other parts of the country.
